Molecular Imaging is a peer-reviewed, open access journal highlighting the breadth of molecular imaging research from basic science to preclinical studies to human applications. This serves both the scientific and clinical communities by disseminating novel results and concepts relevant to the biological study of normal and disease processes in both basic and translational studies ranging from mice to humans.
Molecular Imaging is dedicated to the publication of preclinical research, with special attention given to molecular- and cellular-level discoveries and the full spectrum of imaging modalities including magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, ESR or EPR microscopy, optical imaging, intravital microscopy, diffuse optical tomography, CT, photo-acoustic imaging, PET / SPECT and other methods that elucidate molecular and cellular mechanisms and accelerate understanding of biology. Manuscripts are also sought on the translation of molecular imaging technologies and imaging agents into clinical research studies in humans.
There is no charge for submitting a paper to Molecular Imaging. Upon acceptance of your manuscript, you will be charged a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC). This fee covers the cost of publication and ensures that your article will be freely available. The APC is $1200 for all papers accepted for publication.
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Molecular Imaging (MIX) is a peer-reviewed journal highlighting the breadth of molecular imaging research from basic science to preclinical studies to human applications. MIX covers all imaging modalities including:
- Magnetic Resonance
- Magnetic Particle Imaging
Additionally, MIX covers:
- Development, application and validation of molecular imaging contrast agents
- Probes for cellular and molecular targets (proteins, receptors, enzymes, genes and gene products that are present as a result of normal function or disease)
- In vitro and in vivo assay methodology
- Quantitative imaging and kinetic modeling
- Animal model systems supporting targeted imaging approaches
- Development, testing and validation of imaging devices
Molecular Imaging has been continuously published since 2002. The journal encourages the submission of unsolicited Reviews and papers reporting null or negative results in addition to Research Articles, Brief Reports and Meeting Reports.
This journal will be of particular interest to:
- Molecular Imaging Scientists and Physicians
- Basic and Translational Cancer Researchers
- Medical Physicists
- Radiopharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemists
- Cell and Molecular, Chemical, and Systems Biologists

This Journal recommends that authors follow the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals formulated by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE).
Molecular Imaging is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Please read the full author guidelines for Molecular Imaging at this link, then visit the Journal’s submission site https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/mix to upload your manuscript. Please note that manuscripts not conforming to these guidelines may be returned.
Only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of Molecular Imaging will be reviewed.
Molecular Imaging publishes Research Articles, Brief Reports, Reviews and Meeting Reports. Research Reports are full length original articles. Brief Reports are short, timely articles which may provide preliminary accounts of work of special interest or complete accounts of work of limited scope. While there are no specific length limitations for Brief Reports, authors are encouraged to keep them concise. Authors wishing to contribute a Review should contact the Editor. Reviews should focus on a recent development or issue in a single area, rather than attempt to exhaustively cover an entire topic. Meeting Reports should offer a synthesis of information presented at a scientific meeting that would be of interest to the general readership.
Article Processing Charge (APC)
If, after peer review, your manuscript is accepted for publication, a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) is payable. This APC covers the cost of publication and ensures that your article will be freely available online in perpetuity under a Creative Commons license.
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is $1200 and will be payable upon acceptance.
SNMMI (Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) Members: SNMMI members receive a 50% discount on the APC.
Molecular Imaging publishes manuscripts under Creative Commons licenses. The standard Molecular Imaging license is Creative Commons by Attribution Non-Commercial (CC BY-NC), which allows others to re-use the work without permission as long as the work is properly referenced and the use is non-commercial.
